Nope, don't blame it on the soda, sweet tooth or even alcohol. The real pounds-packer are potato chips! Scientists at Harvard University report in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine that potato chips are the biggest dietary offenders:

"They're very tasty and they have a very good texture. People generally don't take one or two chips. They have a whole bag," obesity expert Dr. F. Xavier Pi-Sunyer of the St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Centerin New York.

The supersizing of Americans has been a long-standing issue, with approximately 97-million adults in the United States categorized as obese. The rate of this condition is at an epidemic upswing. The number of overweight and obese adults has increased every decade since 1960; blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, women and low-income adults have rates of obesity that exceed the national average. There has also been an alarming increase in the incidence of obesity among children and adolescents, with children becoming obese at younger ages.

The Harvard study focuses on how sensible food choices ---fruit, veggies, whole grains and nuts -- are key in weight management. The researchers recommend cutting back on red meats, sweets, soda and potatoes in order to manage weight control. They also recommend exercise to keep the waistline from bulging out of proportion.

After analyzing the dietary habits of 120,877 non-obese health professionals, researchers checked in with the subjects every four years for up to two decades. At every assessment, the subject's weight was noted and they were asked to fill out a questionnaire about the foods they ate. On average, participants gained nearly 17 pounds over the 20-year period.

The consumption of potato chips resulted in a 1.69-pound weight gain over a four-year period, compared to a pound for drinking soda and 0.41 pound for eating sweets.

Other study results with regards to weight gain over a four-year period included:

— An alcoholic drink a day, 0.41-pound increase.
— Watching an hour of TV a day, 0.31-pound increase.
— Recently quitting smoking, 5-pound increase.

The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and a foundation.

Greetings Brother James...

It's not just Potato chips that will put the weight..put Potatos of any kind will put on the weight. If your were in the Armed Services..you've got to remember all those plates of potatos we were made to eat. Even as a Scout when we had the jamborrees there was the potato stacked high, filled with butter everyday...and in both, the order of the day was you had to eat everything on your plate. We always came home with a few extra pounds..the same about the service...lol lol lol lol

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
